Table comparing and contrasting the features of the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM5) and the EPANET Water Distribution System (WDS)


FeatureSWMM5EPANET
SubcatchmentsSubcatchments represent the land area that contributes runoff to a stormwater system. They can be specified by size, slope, and land use.Junctions represent the points where pipes connect in a distribution system. They can be specified by demand and elevation.
LinksLinks model the flow of water through a stormwater system. They can be specified by size, material, and roughness coefficient.Pipes model the flow of water through a distribution system. They can be specified by size, material, and roughness coefficient.
JunctionsJunctions model the points where links connect in a stormwater system. They can be specified by elevation and initial water depth.Junctions model the points where pipes connect in a distribution system. They can be specified by demand and elevation.
OutfallsOutfalls model the points where water leaves a stormwater system, such as a stream or river. They can be specified by type and discharge coefficient.Valves are used to control the flow of water in a distribution system. They can be specified by type and setting.
StorageStorage models the volume of water that can be stored in a stormwater system. It can be specified by size, shape, and initial water depth.Reservoirs and tanks are used to model water storage in a distribution system. They can be specified by size and initial water level.
InfiltrationInfiltration models the infiltration of water into the ground,
